CPAP machines and masks

wear a face or nasal mask during sleep. The mask, connected to a pump, provides a positive flow of air into the nasal passages in order to keep the airway open. Most insurance companies now pay for sleep testing and for CPAP treatment. It is also useful for individuals who have tried all other treatments for their snoring but without success. A variety of fixed pressure and automatic CPAP machines are available from us.

Fight Noise with Noise According to the National Sleep Foundation, noises at levels as low as 40 decibels or as high as 70 decibels can keep us awake. That means that a dripping faucet can steal your sleep as much as your neighbor’s blaring stereo. Sound conditioners are proven to promote sleep by muffling distractions with constant white noise, which sounds like rushing water or gusty winds. The Sleep Infuser masks sounds but also emits a series of low pulsing hums, which the inventors say coax the brain into sleep.

Good Night LED light bulb  Artificial light exposure between dusk and the time we go to bed suppresses the release of the Good Night LED light bulbsleep-promoting hormone melatonin, enhances alertness, and disrupts the body’s circadian rhythm — making it more difficult to fall asleep. The Good Night LED light bulb, originally developed for NASA astronauts on the International Space Station, lets melatonin do its thing by using half of the blue light in normal bulbs

Re-Timer glasses  These Re-Timer glasses provide light therapy using small LEDs to regulate your circadian rhythm and help you sleep better. Change your sleep pattern to suit your lifestyle. Re-Timer gives you the freedom to fall asleep and wake Re-Timer glassesup when you choose.

Missing out on rest can harm brain cell making.brain

Missing out on sleep may cause the brain to stop producing new cells show a new study.

A team from Princeton University found a lack of sleep affected the hippocampus, a brain region involved in forming memories. The research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science showed a stress hormone causes the effect. UK expert said it would be interesting to see if too little rather than no sleep had the same consequence.

The researchers compared animals that were deprived of sleep for 72 hours with others who were not.

They found those who missed out on rest had higher levels of the stress hormone corticosterone.

They also produced significantly fewer new brain cells in a particular region of the hippocampus.

When the animals’ corticosterone levels were kept at a constant level, the reduction in cell proliferation was abolished. Read The Full Story…

Myth 1: Sleep is a time when your body and brain shut down for rest and relaxation.number of hours of sleep
No evidence shows that any major organ (including the brain) or regulatory system in the body shuts down during sleep. Some physiological processes actually become more active while you sleep. For example, secretion of certain hormones is boosted, and activity of the pathways in the brain needed for learning and
memory is heightened.
Myth 2: Getting just 1 hour less sleep per night than needed will not have any effect on your daytime functioning. This lack of sleep may not make you noticeably sleepy during the day. But even slightly less sleep can affect your ability to think properly and respond quickly, and it can compromise your
cardiovascular health and energy balance as well as the ability to fight infections, particularly if lack of sleep continues. If you consistently do not get enough sleep, eventually a sleep debt builds up that will make you excessively tired during the day.
Myth 3: Your body adjusts quickly to different sleep schedules. Your biological clock makes you most alert during the daytime and most drowsy at night. Thus, even if you work the night shift, you will naturally feel sleepy when nighttime comes. Most people can reset their biological clock, but only by appropriately timed cues—and even then, by 1–2 hours per day at best. Consequently, it can take more than a week to adjust to a dramatically altered sleep/wake cycle, such as you encounter when traveling across several time zones or switching from working the day shift to the night shift.

Myth 4: People need less sleep as they get older. Older people don’t need less sleep, but they often get less sleep or find their sleep less refreshing. That’s because as people age, they spend less time in the deep, restful stages of sleep and are more easily awakened. Older people are also more likely to have insomnia or other medical conditions that disrupt their sleep. Read The Full Story…

Insomnia is a very important problem because one-third of the population has symptoms of insomnia. There are three different types of insomnia. These are transient, acute, or chronic insomnia. Transient insomnia lasts only a few nights to a few weeks. This is often the result of jet lag, medication side effects, caffeine, transient stress. Acute insomnia lasts over a period no longer than six months, no shorter than 3 weeks. Chronic insomnia occurs nearly every night for a period of a month or longer.

You can heal insomnia naturally without resorting to sleeping pills by developing these simple habits:

Basic Sleep Hygiene:

– Exercise at night.Treat and Heal Insomnia Insomnia is often caused by too much stress. Doing exercise at night makes blood to flow in our brain and body. This in turn makes us calm and stress free.

– Temperature reduction and optimisation. A slight lowering of body temperature which occurs at night plays a very important role in modulating the chemical signals which induce sleep. While trying to fall asleep in bed always take steps to achieve a comfortable temperature as being too hot or too cold can inhibit sleep. If you are bothered by cold feet in the night, or wake up in the night feeling cold, wear socks to bed. The average optimum temperature for quality sleep is 19 degrees, although this may vary from person to person.

– Read books not TV watches.Treat and Heal Insomnia Read books, magazines or anything that interests an insomniac instead of watching television. Television enhances attention, which makes a person awake. Reading on the other hand while in bed causes the eye to get tired and creates a sleepy feeling.

– Use organic cotton bedding. Permanent press bedding can give off low-grade chemical fumes while you sleep. Your body can deplete nutrients such as zinc and magnesium trying to detoxify these types of chemicals.

– Take a Warm Bath. It is a great way to relax your body. Do not overdo it, however. You merely want to relax your body, not exhaust it. Too long in hot water and your body is drained of vitality. Use bath salts, or throw in Epsom salts and baking soda—one cup of each. These will relax you and help remove toxins from your body. Read The Full Story…

There are a number of reasons why sleep problems can develop:
1. Normal effects of ageing – as mentioned, when people get older they tend to sleep less deeply and need less sleep. Not only this, but sometimes people develop a habit of dropping off to
sleep during the day which again reduces the need for sleep at night. This in itself is not a problem, but often not sleeping becomes a greater cause for worry, frustration and concern, which in turn leads to sleeping less well.

2. Medical reasons for disrupted sleep – medical reasons for poor sleep may or may not be related to getting older. Some examples are:
The need to go to the toilet during the night occurs more in later life. About 60% of women and about 70% of men, aged over 65 get out of bed at least once a night to go to the toilet. This can also happen for other reasons of course, such as pregnancy. Getting out of bed at night isn`t always a great problem, but can be frustrating if it is difficult to get back to sleep.
Another medical reason is pain. This again can be common in older age with joint pains such as arthritis. The emotional upset of loss or bereavement can affect sleep and again this may be more common in older people. Some medicines can interfere with sleep, so it is worth checking with your doctor if you are on any tablets. Read The Full Story…

The researchers reporting online on 22 April in Current Biology, a publication of Cell Press,power-nap provides further evidence that the habits of successful study should include a lot of naps. They found that people taking a nap and dream about a task they have just learned to make better wake up than any of those who do not sleep at all, or those who sleep, but do not report any sleep partners.

The students in the study were asked to sit in front of a computer screen and learn to design a three dimensional maze so that they could find their way to a mark (a tree) when dropped into a randomly selected the virtual space of five hours later. Those who were allowed to take a nap and dream also reminded the task of finding the tree in less time.

“First thought that dreaming must reflect the process of memory performance is improving,” said Robert Stickgold of Harvard Medical School. “But if you look at the content of dreams, it was hard to argue that.” Read The Full Story…

Some of the advantages offered by gastric bypass surgery are significant weight loss, improvement in several health conditions and social well being. On the other hand, the negative side of gastric bypass is the presence of health risks and complications that might occur during surgery, nutritional deficiency in patients and anastomotic complications that occur after surgery.
Gastric bypass surgery is a type of weight loss operation meant to treat severe obesity and thebottom-pic-1 health problems resulting from it. It has become one of the popular solutions to people’s weight problems, and information about it is now readily available. Even on the Internet, websites featuring Las Vegas gastric bypass surgery is easy to come across. There are a number of health advantages and disadvantages involved when undertaking gastric bypass surgery, and all of them are worth considering.


Significant weight loss

The most obvious benefit offered by gastric bypass surgery is a significant reduction of weight. Weight loss in people undertaking extensive gastric bypass surgeries is estimated to be as high as 65% to 80% of excess body fat. Compared to dieting or exercise, the weight loss benefits are long-lasting and are achieved over a shorter span of time.

Improvement of health conditions

Another positive result of the surgery is a significant decrease in the co-morbid conditions of patients. These health conditions include hyperlipidemia and essential hypertension, which are both seen as being relieved in more than 70% of patients. Nearly 90% of patients see a dramatic improvement in their diabetes mellitus type 2 condition, while 80% experience lower blood cholesterol levels within a couple of months after the surgery. Almost all patients experience relief from gastroesophageal reflux disease as well as back pains and joint aches. After losing weight there is also a dramatic relief from sleep apnea and a reduction of snoring. Several respiratory illnesses are also improved, including respiratory insufficiency and asthma.
